National Geographic’s “The Earth’s Moon” is like having an atlas and almanac in one. This incredibly informative wall map features detailed depictions of the entire surface of the moon with a selective index showing the named physical features. Diagrams show the moon’s orbital paths, rotation around Earth, librations, how solar and lunar eclipses occur, and how the moon affects Earth’s tides. The phases of the moon are detailed along with the features visible in each phase. Craters, mountain ranges, highlands, seas, rays, and other physical features are described, as are the moon’s physical properties, moon lore, and more. Comparisons to the moons of other planets in our solar system and information on the Apollo Missions is included as well. This map is both an attractive object of art and a handy reference tool for anyone interested in astronomy.
The map is encapsulated in heavy-duty 1.6 mil laminate which makes the paper much more durable and resistant to the swelling and shrinking caused by changes in humidity. Laminated maps can be framed without the need for glass, so the fames can be much lighter and less expensive.
